Kent Public Service Matters
May 21 – 27 “National Public Works Week” Video Highlight
This week is National Public Works week and I urge you to give an extra thanks to Kent’s Public Service/Works employees who do all the things that make Kent a great place to call home. If you had any doubts of how much impact they have on all of our lives, please take a moment to read the KENT PUBLIC SERVICE MATTERS report.
24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year Kent’s Public Service/Works employees are working to make sure the Kent is a community that people are proud to call home. In the course of the day, public works services touch Kent residents hundreds of times with little notice of fanfare. These services don’t just happen, they are the result of dedicated men and women who have made a personal choice to serve the Kent community. Being a public service/works employee means making sacrifices as you are often the first to be called in and asked to leave your family on a stormy night in order to go take care of the other families in Kent.
With another top national award for the taste and quality of Kent’s drinking water, an outstanding environmental compliance award for Kent’s water reclamation plant and the Kent Dam serving as a model for Ohio water quality, it’s been a very good year for Kent’s public services. Their uniforms may not be fancy and they’re work may not be considered glamorous, but the impact it has on our lives is undeniable.
My thanks to everyone in the Kent City organization that proudly wears a uniform labeled Kent Public Services. Congratulations on another great year.
